I stayed in a room with 3 other girls, 3 single beds and one put up bed. All were comfortable, even with 4 beds - plenty of room. Bathroom was a decent size although shower wasn't great and did leak. Small kitchenette is a good plus - cooker, microwave for those that want to cook their own meals.
Balcony with chairs was also nice!
The motel is a 5 minute walk to the beach and centre of Paihia. The beach was OK and the water was warm, but once in the water the sand was very clay like!
I ate at a couple of restaurants in the centre and both were VERY good!! One thai and one fast food fish shop - both on the front!
Nightlife there are a few bars and these are a 15-20 minute walk from the motel.
Breakfast was included - basic cereal, but was enough.
Wi-Fi was free you just need to ask reception for the password.
